The Jean Cocteau Cinema opened as the Collective Fantasy Cinema in 1976. Brent Kliewer, programmer for the Collective Fantasy, bought the theatre in 1983 and renamed it the Jean Cocteau in reverence to the French filmmaker and artist. A few years later Kliewer, sold it to Blue Pearl Corporation in 1986.
Later in 1989, Trans-Lux Corporation purchased the venue and ran the cinema, which at the time had a single screen and 120 seats. Seventeen years later, Trans-Lux Corporation closed the Jean Cocteau Cinema in April 2006. The state of New Mexico used the opportunity to lease the second floor offices of the building and planned to create the cinema below as the official home for the state film office. The state developed plans to make the main hall auditorium into a film museum, however, the funding for that project never came to fruition and the film office left the offices and cinema in 2010. During that time, Trans-Lux still owned the cinema, which unfortunately stood vacant until it was purchased by author George RR Martin. After renovations and upgrades, the Jean Cocteau Cinema reopened the theatre doors on August 9 2013.
Now, the cinema has 128 seats in the main hall auditorium and a separate VIP booth with seating for 4. With 132 seats, a single screen, and the best popcorn in town, the Jean Cocteau Cinema prides itself on becoming Santa Fe’s most eclectic movie house. The cinema continues to show film on both 35 mm and digital, combining the best of the old with the best of the new.
In addition to showing a variety of films, the Jean Cocteau Cinema hosts live music events, invites authors for readings and book signings, serves drinks from our full liquor licensed bar, and sells books and merchandise from the in-house bookstore.
El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving, protecting, and promoting the Hispano arts, culture and traditions of Northern New Mexico organized as a Center of Hispanic Culture and Learning. As much an educational and community gathering space as a museum, the Santa Fe Cultural Museum celebrates Santa Fe’s—and New Mexico’s—rich Hispanic heritage by presenting a wide range of events, from children’s theater, to musical concerts, to a great Dia de Los Muertos celebration at the beginning of November.
For three weeks each year, El Museo is home to CURRENTS New Media
, an annual, citywide event. CURRENTS brings together the work of established and emerging New Media artists, from New Mexico, the US and the World, for events showcasing interactive and non-interactive installations, multimedia performances, VR and AR environments, single channel video, animation, experimental documentary, web based/app art forms, robotics and 3D printing.
Housed in the back of a custom retrofitted 1970 aluminum stepvan, Axle Contemporary is an art gallery on wheels. We exhibit installation art, performance, works on paper, including photography, drawing, and painting, and occasionally sculpture. Our mobility allows us to visit both typical art venues and unusual ones, such as schools, empty lots, restaurants, grocery stores,and city streets.
Our 6' x 10' exhibition space features high wood ceilings, exposed beams, track lighting and a magnetically based system for displaying unframed works on paper.
Axle Contemporary was founded in 2010 by artists Matthew Chase-Daniel and Jerry Wellman, as a collaborative work of art, and an innovative vehicle for arts distribution. It has since grown beyond the confines of the mobile exhibition space, and also includes book publishing, and alternative methods of creation and dissemination of contemporary arts in the public sphere.
SITE Santa Fe nurtures innovation, discovery, and inspiration through the art of today.
